Cartoon theme song fun.

During Halloween I enjoyed several fun theme songs like Ghostbusters, Friday the 13th, and of course Scooby Doo. So of course I started thinking about Saturday morning cartoon theme songs. My husband and I both remember a lot of them, (they really stick in your mind). The fun of theme songs is they’re short, to the point and upbeat. They’re easy to remember even after years and years.

Coincidentally I saw a commercial for the new Bee Movie coming out. Jerry Seinfeld was doing a spot where he was talking to the crew about a theme song for the movie. He did a whole rendition of the theme song for Super Chicken. It was so funny! Especially when he said that nobody remembers the cartoon, but everyone knows the theme song. It’s totally true. (Although on the commercial his singing was met with blank stares.)

Recently I came across a great web site that has many different theme songs categorized for your enjoyment. They have TV shows, Saturday morning cartoons and more. Take a gander on the main web page, they have a huge selection to choose from. Here are some of my favorites:

George of the Jungle
Mighty Mouse
Super Chicken
Scooby Doo
Banana Splits

What were your favorites?

Thanks for listing this site. A friend at work and I were reminiscing about old shows like Loveboat, Fantasy Island and Charlie's Angels. They were all listed here and we had much fun listening this morning.
